Late rap artist Juice WRLD had family and friends pay him respect in his hometown. New reports claim a private funeral gathering went down in Illinois.
According to reports, the event took place Friday less than an hour outside of Chicago.
Juice WRLD — born Jarad Anthony Higgins — had an open-casket funeral Friday at Holy Temple Cathedral Church of God in Christ in Harvey, Illinois … about 45 minutes south of the rapper’s hometown of Chicago. The program included a collage of pictures featuring Juice WRLD. His mother, Carmella Wallace, also paid tribute to her son. His siblings and grandmother also shared some words. Several staffers and execs from Interscope — his record label — attended, as did Juice’s friend and fellow rapper, Ski Mask the Slump God. (TMZ)
On Friday, rap star Young Thug shared a tribute post acknowledging Juice’s life.
This week, Juice’s mom issued a statement acknowledging his addiction to prescription drugs.
A few days ago, rap artists G Herbo and Joyner Lucas clashed over WRLD’s death and the problem with musicians taking drugs.
